Until they came out first with some cool Lord of the Rings and then The Hobbit sets, Lego was something that I'd just really viewed as a construction toy for my young daughter to play with. But once I saw the offerings based on the movies from Tolkien's popular fantasy books - I was well and truly hooked.
Now I own a number of these sets simply because we all (as a family) find them fun to build, collect and also to put out on display too. They make a great talking point when guests come round. Even though I'm an adult, I'll admit that I do enjoy playing with them just a bit too! Gandalf is a favorite character and he comes in a number of sets which I will list for you here in this guide.
